Who Will Pay for Itf
Members of tho commlttco inter
viewed last night were generally ad
verso to a primary. They wanted to
know who would pay for It. The law
limits tho assessment of candidates
to f> per cent of the salary of the ofllce
for tho first year, so that candidates j
for tho Senate could only contribute j
525 each. City and county treasurers ,
aro not authorized under tho act to j
pay the expenses of moro than one j
primary, and that primary has already 1
been held. The cost of a primary elec- .
tion in Richmond, with Judges and j
clerks for twenty-two precincts, print- j
lng antl other charges, Including the |
receiving and tabulation of tho re- I
turns, is from $800 to $1,000. Tho |
committee doos not seem to be favor- j
ably disposed to a primary anyhow; j
It had hoped to exercise its own au- ;
thority and select a Senator until the ;
action of the Governor made a primary I
possible, and until it knows who Is j
going to put tip tho expense monoy
it Is hardly probable that It will favor
